"Deep ruby. Expansive, spice-accented aromas of red and blue fruit liqueur, Indian spices and candied flowers, lifted by a minerally nuance. Silky, broad and alluringly sweet in the mouth, offering sappy raspberry, boysenberry and floral pastille flavors that become more energetic with air. In a juicy, elegant style; a refreshing jolt of minerality adds focus to the impressively long, subtly tannic finish."
93 points Wine Spectator
"Has the ripeness of the vintage, but carries the opulent raspberry, boysenberry and blackberry coulis flavors with a sense of refinement, thanks to long, silky tannins and charming shiso leaf, iron and incense notes that weave gently through the finish. Best from 2019 through 2028. 500 cases made."
